This handy textbook offers a one-stop compendium on teaching the extensive range of primary foundation subjects. It takes an innovative 'three lens' approach which considers the Identity and Pedagogy of each of the foundation subjects, as well as presenting a Toolkit of teaching activities. This useful framework helps you develop your knowledge and understanding of the foundation subjects, as well as how to plan, assess and teach these diverse subjects. The book also helps you understand the value that the foundation subjects bring and enables you to reflect on why and how to teach them in a creative, imaginative and inspirational way. In particular the book offers: A clear structure that is easy to follow A concise overview of the curriculum requirements for each subject Great teaching ideas for each subject to try out in the classroom Links to academic research and practical experiences from the classroom With its rich range of creative and practical teaching activities, and underpinned by the pedagogy and identity of each discipline, this is essential reading for beginning and early career teachers. Maggie Webster is Senior Lecturer and RE Subject Leader at Edge Hill University, UK. Sarah Misra is Senior Lecturer and PGCE Programme Leader at Staffordshire University, UK. An essential companion for both new and experienced educators of the Primary Curriculum. Webster and Misra draw on the pertinent knowledge and experience of subject specialists to deliver a modern, articulate and knowledgeable overview of how to effectively deliver the Foundation Subjects. Their passion for the Foundation Subjects is evident through their in-depth analysis of the value they have to the holistic development of children. Through a comprehensive examination of subject identity, effective pedagogy and creative teaching strategies, Webster and Misra provide the tools to be a pro-active, reflective and versatile leader in the Foundation Subjects. The knowledge and experience of the authors and contributors is evident in the books ability to convey theory and pedagogy using coherent and accessible language which makes it both informative and practical. This book adopts a unique and fresh approach which seamlessly combines theory and experience to deliver information that is enlightening, inspiring and truly useful. Nick Murphy, Edge Hill University, Trainee teacher and Teaching Assistant This book fills a void in the world of ITE. The links between theory and practice can be difficult to comprehend for those making their first steps into the profession. With the three lens approach exploring the unique nature of each discipline synthesised with pedagogical aspects and creative ideas, this book provides fabulous support for trainee teachers to clearly make those links. I feel that 'Teaching the Primary Foundation Subjects' will be an invaluable text for ITE providers to share with their students to support and guide them not only through their placements but through their academic work too.

Since the publication of the first edition, Organising Learning in the Primary School Classroom has been recognised as an indispensable guide for primary school teachers in their quest for more effective practice in the classroom. It gives help on everyday problems of classroom organisation: how to group children, how to set out a classroom physically, how to make the most efficient use of time and resources. Now in its 4th edition, the book retains these strengths but has been brought right up to date with the many changes that are taking place nationally and globally. The book begins with a survey of these recent changes and goes on to consider their implications for teachers if today's schools are to prepare children for what is, to some extent, an unknown future. In addition to chapters on classroom organisation, the book includes chapters on: child development creativity PSHE and citizenship teaching language and literacy, ICT, mathematics and science the foundation subjects working with parents working effectively with Teaching Assistants evaluating and assessing learning teaching children with special educational needs or exceptional ability. Throughout, the aim is to get teachers and student teachers to analyse their own classrooms and to produce solutions that will work for them. This book will be invaluable not only to newly qualified teachers, but also to experienced practitioners wishing to review their work.
